Christmas Week Fun Part 1

 


Hello Everyone!

My goal is to post ALL this week.

Today we are starting with some Trivia
because you wouldn't be at "Country
Dreaming" at Christmas with some
Trivia.

Here we go!

1.  "Christmas Towns"

North Pole, NY
Bethlehem, PA
Santa Claus, IN
Christmas, FL
Noel, MO
Elf, NC
Humbug, AZ
Shepherd, TX
Rudolph, WI

2. Glaedelig, jul
means "Merry Christmas"
in Danish.

3. Sinterklaas comes with
gifts on December 5th in the
Netherlands.

4. According to tradition, in Greece
the "Great Log" burns in the fireplace
for 12 days between December 25-
January 6th.

5. Alabama became the first state
in 1836 to recognize Christmas as
a legal holiday.

6. The needles of the Eastern
White Pine are edible and a
good source of Vitamin C.
They have five times the
amount of  Vitamin C content
of lemons.

7. The Salvation Army has been
taking donations in the iconic
red kettles for over 125 years.
The Christmas season in 1891
was the first collection season.

8. AND last but NOT least.
Mistletoe means dung plant.
 
Ho! Ho! Ho!


Come back tomorrow for a
Christmas Home Tour.


~Keep Dreaming~
